June 2009

Letter from the President - Gerri Aurre

This month the NCAA gave out it's scholarships and endowments to local art programs.

$500 to the Summer Program at the Lighthouse Center for the Arts
$200 to Molly's House in Stuart
$200 to Martin County Special Needs Training Art Program
$100 to Artists Showcase of the Palm Beaches

There are so many worthy causes in our area so we are making an effort to offer assistance to a greater variety of arts venues.

In addition, the NCAA awarded $25 each to the following students at the Lighthouse Center Elementary/Secondary Students Annual Art Show:

Vicente Alpizar, Pine Jog Elementary School, 4th Grade
"Recycle for a Brighter World", multi-media

Anjelique Stelwagon, Independence Middle School, 6th Grade
"Companion", tempera

Kiera Pelletier, South Fork High School, 11th Grade
" Escape", photograph

At our May meeting, members seemed to enjoy getting in touch with their inner child and generally being messy with papier-mache. I do hope that some of you join me, with your work, on May 31st, at my studio from 4 to 6.

I had forgotten how much I enjoy the medium and expect that somehow I will incorporate papier-mache into future work. I used Plaster Cloth, ordered from Jerry's Arterama. It is much less messy than the newspaper and wallpaper paste version.

Next month our demonstrator will be Quince Quaintance. I've asked Quince to bring along some examples of his beautiful landscapes and it should be wonderful learning about some of his techniques.

Space available at new VILLAGE ARTISANS, being established in the gallery space adjacent to the Lighthouse Center for the Arts (The Cloutier Gallery space)
